Meet Cute is a way to quickly introduce two characters and set up their burgeoning relationship. A meet-cute is almost always rife with awkwardness, embarrassment, and sometimes outright hostility. It's often used in films, particularly the RomanticComedy, due to time constraints; while on television a relationship can develop more naturally over many episodes, a movie has to get their couple set up right away to fit within 2 hours.

** Notably averted with Korra's endgame love interest, [[spoiler: Asami]]. When the two of them first meet, it's at a formal gala event, and although Korra feels hostile, the situation has none of the Meet-Cute's trademark... well, cuteness. Justified by the writers having not so much dreamed of his pairing at that point in the story.

* In the ''TheDreamer'', although Alexander and Beatrice technically already knew each other, they still met cute in [[http://thedreamercomic.com/comic.php?id=237 issue nine]]. Granted, they aren't in a relationship yet, it's still worth noting.

* ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'': Aral and Cordelia Vorkosigan have one of the strangest examples ever put to paper in [[VorkosiganSaga Shards of Honor]]. She's the commander of a Betan scientific survey group and he's the commander of the Barrayaran taskforce that just attacked her base, killing one of her men and landing another with serious brain damage. It's LoveAtFirstSight, at least on Aral's side, and he proposes marriage about [[FourthDateMarriage three days later]].
